First:Draft pick! and no I don't mean just ranked. Possibly more than 6 total bans until balance gets better.
Second: Understand while individual champs are REALLY strong, what really becomes the issue is combinations, which yield a much bigger issue in tt. Im not sure how to fix that though.
Blitzcrank, is a game changer, the map being smaller, means he can land more grabs that just ruin the game, once the death timers have ramped up to stupid levels like 60 seconds, and ONE blitzcrank grab from the woods, spells the end of the game. And I couldnt see it coming, can stick together with my team and still have to completely hug the side walls opposite of the jungle, or stay in base. Not fun.
Sion, is out of control. The new Ravenous Hydra + his ult is.... I dont have words. Unless you can cc him for the full duration or just flat out run from him, he is going to kill, or at least survive your whole team 3v1.
Darius + kayle is an utter nightmare. In fact Kayle plus any of the champs like irelia, olaf (cant be cced or damaged? FML) Blowing my bans on champs who cc doesnt exactly effect leaves really strong picks like Darius, Jax (who gets defensive stats on activate, from offensive stats) to just punish me.
Also! Proposed fix for Teemopness. Make dat shroom ult a skillshot. Same damage, same charges, just, it makes him have to be IN the fight. Release a lore reasoning "the dark energies in the soil prevent Teemo's shrooms from surviving longer than a few seconds"
Garen either snowballs, or becomes useless. His snowballiness is ridiculous too. Not, "oh just avoid him hes fed" nope its "Hey look its Ga-UGH -dead-" And with the new BC armor doesn't even begin to save you. While I love the big guy, it can feel incredibly impossible to deal with him if a teammate messes up and feeds him 3 times..
Riven... Highest AD scaling, low cooldowns, 4 mini flashes, a stupid strong passive....at lvl 1. She did 75% of my health as Garen with her q plus ONE auto attack. Despite my defensive masteries and armor runes. Plus her massive steroid, which doesnt go away once she "releases" it. which is, an AOE wave execute. Her whole kit make darius look like a baby in 3s. There is literally no downside to her.
Jayce and Nidalee and Elise also have similar issues, but only due to their larger ability pool. It means more potential damage than other champs when utilized correctly. But I like these champs only for their ability to fight other "op" champs, yet having a higher skillcap to be as effective.
I appreciate the constant prodding for answers and keep up the good work Riot. The game is frustrating me a bit now, but when your trying to fix things, I can only say but so much.
